Drama Curriculum

Drama is outlined in the 2014 National Curriculum under the ā€˜Spoken Languageā€™ section, which says:

ā€œAll pupils should be enabled to participate in and gain knowledge, skills and understanding associated with the artistic practice of drama. Pupils should be able to adopt, create and sustain a range of roles, responding appropriately to others in role. They should have opportunities to improvise, devise and script drama for one another and a range of audiences, as well as to rehearse, refine, share and respond thoughtfully to drama and theatre performances.ā€
